  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    Link please? About the ongoing violence across the US, sanctioned by one "side". I'll wait while you find it ......
  • Commented on Upcoming travel
    Essentially diplomatic status only works if the country you are entering doesn't want to piss off the country who issued your diplomatic credentials. And as the US remains the 800lb gorilla on the block ......
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    What Martin said. Or to summarize: It's complicated, if you think you've unsderstood it, you probably haven't....
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    You are quick to complain of others hurling general insults. A little more precision and specificity in your use of "deludees" would not go amiss. Although, I agree with the general thrust of your comment, and would also suggest that...
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    Then throw in the Macedonian angle, where you effectively have spambots running on human wetware. Extra added fun time!...
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    "Bonkers" is not a good word for it. There are people out there who are terrifyingly sane from there own perspective, and cleave the to following philosophy: What I know is the truth, because I know it's the truth. Rational...
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    PS: I am deeply aware that I am over simplifying and focusing on the straight line to the money with that explanation. There are a huge number of other/additional explanations possible, with interesting twists that could only be mapped in...
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    Think of Charlie's oft used axiom: News media are in the business of selling eyeballs to advertisers. Combine this with a genuine unfiltered true-believer audience for many alt-right (and also far left) "news" sites, and there is no reason whatsoever...
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    So, why are you ranting on about this bullshit, anyway? It comes back to what reality you choose to live in. You've been over this ground with both Charlie and the Many Naméd One before -- there are many many...
  • Commented on A Surfeit of Emeralds: Healthcare in the Middle Ages
    Other interesting (for the usual values of "interesting") side effect of the ongoing singularity -- highlighted by Brexit and the Trumpening -- is the inability of many to understand that "bring manufacturing back" won't bring jobs back....
  • Commented on Some notes on the worst-case scenario
    It may be valid to argue whether there is planning and intent or convergent "greed, stupidity, and incompetence", but in effect it's rather like arguing whether a competent trained shooter with a rifle is more or less dangerous that a...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    Indeed. A summary of the linked article: Man who cheerleads for Trump, defends his top advisor. In other news: Rain is wet. (And now I need to go wash my brain out.)...
  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    effects on the constitutional position of the 6 Counties could also be "interesting" And probably best observed from far far away. If you're interested, for extra insight into the chaos and confusion being piled onto the Brexit cluster-fuck in NI,...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    Of course, we could save ourselves a lot of time and angst by just dismissing her as a narcissistic fantasist, with a history of self-aggrandising bullshit, unnecessarily aggressive outbursts and bullying, and serial lies and hypocrisy. Of course, she's also...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    Doxxing: From the Urban Dictionary. Essentially it means to reveal someone's personal information (specifically identity and address) on line, usually for the purposes of harassing that person. Given that you use your real name, and are widely active online under...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    Greg (and others), full translation of recent comments: Seagull: Mine! (YT, lengthy)...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    Have also heard: Dumb as a bag of spanners. Or (for the cruder and more scatalogically inclined): Thick as pig sh*t....
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    Always remember that The Seagull argues like a 15 year old denizen of the "chans" (state opinion as indisputable fact; when someone disagrees with you whoever shouts loudest and longest with the most insults, wins), and I think that we...
  • Commented on And the Rabid Nazi Raccoons shall inherit the Earth
    UKIP NI? Sadly such a beast does indeed exist. But the base they appeal to is more or less a subset of the electorate that are typical DUP voters, so there is little chance of them being an influential voice...
  • Commented on Things Can Only Get Better! (Part 1)
    Yup. We'll be uxtered into the back alley, the door bolted behind us, and the unfriendly looking types with heavy bats and stee-toed boots are closing in for some "hard negotiation". Once AT50 is triggered officially, what possible incentive does...
  • Commented on A reminder
    Seems pretty straightforward to me: If discrimination is based on the concept of "race" or "racial characteristics", then it's racism. Doesn't matter how "mild" it is, doesn't matter how much we wrong our hands and agonise over a "spectrum", it's...
  • Commented on Children and War Toys and Violent Video Games and Action Stories
    As with most of Fletcher's comments on this thread, his concern for facts or accuracy is non-existent. His dismissal of and attack on the Guardian and Independent are simply a diversion from the shoddy sources he has linked to --...
  • Commented on Playtime is over
    But clearly an entity such as "She Who Is Not Fun Anymore" can just pop next door to a more sane universe or just rewrite the rules of our reality to conform to her requirements. No?...
  • Commented on Children and War Toys and Violent Video Games and Action Stories
    I think that, unfortunately, it has become clearer with every comment that Fletcher Christian really isn't interested in facts, actual statistics, or anything real that contradicts his own biases or the narrative he has built on dubious (at best) sources...
  • Commented on Playtime is over
    Holy cow! You're not a smoking hole in the ground? How did you avoid the awesome powers and manifold agents of "She Who Is Not Fun Anymore"?...
  • Commented on Children and War Toys and Violent Video Games and Action Stories
    I would like to believe that this is a debate that holds any merit or likelihood of convincing you how wrong you are; but from the tenor of your statements so far, and the kind of "evidence" (already demolished by...
  • Commented on Playtime is over
    @693, @694, @@695, and @697: I'm sorry that you missed my point....
  • Commented on Playtime is over
    Advice (freely given): Stop tilting at windmills....
  • Commented on Playtime is over
    Ah yes. 1513, and all that jazz. Colour me unimpressed and unconvinced of your high moral standards. [End of line]...
  • Commented on Children and War Toys and Violent Video Games and Action Stories
    I'm assuming that the question in your first paragraph is rhetorical in nature? It is of course well known that there are "good" immigrants and "bad" immigrants, and there's an easy way to tell them apart... (Note: previous statement requires...
